As a kid I read anything by Brian Jacques, but now it’s probably a tie between Malcolm Gladdwell and Ravi Zacharias.

Taylor Jenkins Reid is definitely a favorite, I picked up some of her books, and enjoyed each one. Also Helen Hoang, even though she only has two books, each of them were equally great, and I’ll read anything she writes.

Seanan McGuire/Mira Grant . Her books are like home to me. Only person could get me to read a trilogy about tapeworm zombies. I even named a child after one of her characters.

Probably Ilona Andrews. I’ve reread their series multiple times. As a child? Probably Mercedes Lackey!

Definitely, Ellen Hopkins! Her prose is so melodic and really intense. I also appreciate how she tackles really difficult subjects such as drug abuse, sex trafficking, and mental health.

I am just getting back into the groove of reading and honestly, still LOVE R.L. Stine’s books. I’ve read the first 60 goosebumps and bought his recently released signed graphic novel from Barnes and Noble.

I found my love for reading via Goosebumps and still love his books.

I can’t get enough Mary Higgins Clark, especially since she started the Under Suspicion series with Alafair Burke. She always gets me with a twist, even when I think I’ve got everything figured out.

Jonathan Maberry… hands down!

I love Taylor Jenkins Reid. I recently read The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and loved it but I’m most looking forward to reading Daisy Jones and the Six. Have you read it? If so, how was it? Did it live up to the hype?

I love a good R.L. Stine book! I grew up reading them as well. I find myself always going back to an author from my childhood. The one that sticks out for me is Cynthia Voigt. She wrote The Tillerman Series; Homecoming, Dicey’s Song, A Solitary Blue, etc. That series has always stuck with me and I could read them over and over and never get tired of it.
